Are you interested in mounting a 50-60mm Stellarvue finder scope to an imported reflector or Chinese focuser? This is the accessory for you.

exercise in frustration! Review by

This item is one to be avoided!! I installed a Stellarvue F50M 9x50 finder on it and it took me ages to align the finder with my 12 dob!! The 6 screw system makes the whole thing VERY difficult to align. Cannot be centered easily and it makes the finder slip sometimes if you forget to tighten one of the screws! I cannot believe they are still producing this total failure of a system..The original cylinder bracket that came along with the dob is MUCH better BUT the F50M won't fit inside the cylinder so i HAD to use that silly 6 screw system. I am planning to get rid of it the soonest possible! Don't mess with it, it will get to your nerves! (Posted on 11/17/10)

I purchased this finder bracket for a Celestron C102mm wide view spotting scope I own. Very pleased with the purchase. Excellent overall quality, all metal construction. Quick release
feature maintains collimation as advertised. This is made to mount up to a 60mm finder. I mounted a 50mm scope in this but very much like the extra wiggle room I had with the 6 long set screws. Made alignment a snap. I purchased this across the counter at OPT. Staff was very helpful, allowing me to check the fit of the base on a C102 they had on the floor prior to puchase. Thanks again.
